Q. If you are FERS and under 62, will your retired pay stay exactly the same until you start getting COLAs at 62? For example, if I retire at 56 and get $800 a month, does it stay that way for the next six years?
Q. I am currently a federal employee and retired from the Army. I am receiving my military retirement (annuity). I recently paid a military deposit under FERS to position myself to waive my military retirement and add it to my federal time before I retire. I will also have approximately 45 years of combined service at the conclusion of my career. Am I eligible for CSRS or just FERS? The reason I now ask is because my new service computation date is now May 1982.
Q. I have worked since I was 14. I am now just about to turn 50. I have been a hard worker during my life and my body just cannot take it anymore. I have made between $30 and $110,000 a year. My wife works and makes decent money. What are my options? I have not worked for the last two years.
Q. I was informed by my local human resources and retirement benefits representative that under FERS, with 30 years of credible service, I am eligible for retirement at any age (I am age 50, with 20 credible years of service) without reduction in annuity payments. Does this seem correct?
Q. I will be able to retire on Dec. 19, 2018, at 57 years old, so I will have the time and the age, but I will probably retire at the end of the month on the last full pay period in December. How do I calculate the FERS special retirement supplement between 2018 (age 57) and the time I turn 62 years of age?
Q. I’m a federal firefighter required to retire from my job after 34 years. I’m 57 years old and under FERS. I will receive the special retirement supplement along with my annuity. What is the dollar threshold amount where they start reducing the supplement?
